Catch Up Support
Literacy & Numeracy Catch Up: 2017-18
Beaumont School received £9654 additional funding for Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch up for the academic year 2017-18 for 43 eligible students.
This was spent on: a transition Summer School, literacy withdrawal groups in Year 7, increasing TA support in Year 7 English lessons and on additional support for lower ability Maths.
The literacy withdrawal groups allow these students to work in small groups (between two and four students) to focus on spellings, grammar, sentence construction as well as reading. The groups follow a set programme called Fresh Start.
The TA support in English lessons allows students to have further support in literacy within the curriculum, allowing them to access the work and develop their literacy further.
All students also follow the Accelerated Reader (AR) programme within English lessons. TA support in these lessons allows these students to have further support in their reading. The AR programme allows students to track their progress within the programme.
The Maths groups are smaller than all other groups (between 10 and 15 students). These also have extra TA support allowing for more individualised work and support.
The school had 25 students who had either been disapplied from KS2 SATs or had not achieved the expected level of progress by the end of Key Stage 2.
Out of the 25 students, 96% are now working either in line with or above their target level.
The school had 31 students who had either been disapplied from KS2 SATs or had not achieved the expected level of progress by the end of Key Stage 2.
Out of the 31 students, 91% are either working above or in line with their target level.
This academic year, the school will be receiving approximately £9500.
This money will continue to fund the literacy withdrawal groups, focusing on the Fresh Start programme, TA support in English lessons, smaller Maths sets and general support in Maths.
